Today, the mouse is a widely used animal model in the scientific community. Due to the constant development of new biotechnological methods, especially through CRISPR, the scientific interest in models for research is very high. Many new techniques lead to a reduction in the number of donors and fosters. Nevertheless, the requirements for animal husbandry, hygiene and also the experimentally desired work are demanding.
Whatever you plan experimental to do with mice, please use our support. We have a wide range of technologies to create mutant mice. In case of mouse lines from outside, we import from breeding companies or collaborative Institutions or Universities using cryopreserved gametes where possible. We push the 3 R's in all aspects of scientific work with animals and also help in planning specific mouse populations.
The TCF is the link between the BMS (animal husbandry) and the research groups. We advise on the generation of new mouse lines and generate them using the latest methods. We work very closely with the GEF (Genome Engineering Facility) and the Genotyping Facility to bring projects to a successful conclusion.
